The Nutrition and Dietetic Service in Swansea Bay University Health Board are looking to appoint an experienced Dietitian to join their Adult Home Enteral Feeding Service.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the enteral feeding team to deliver a service across the Health Board.

The post would be suitable for a highly motivated dietitian who already has a sound knowledge and experience of working with a diverse clinical caseload including home enteral feeding. You will have skills in prioritisation and time management, with the ability to work autonomously and flexibly across the health board.

It is important that you have the ability to develop good working relationships with a range of people from different agencies and are able to demonstrate excellent communication pathways via liaison and referral to other agencies as required.

We offer both departmental and personal CPD time to support your development and are committed to the development of evidenced based practice, research and clinical audit. You will be supported in attending relevant professional networking meetings, interest groups.

Administrative support and Dietetic Support Worker assistance is available within the department.
